Love it at the moment. Easily the best season so far, strong plot lines and more interest week to week in the overall picture.

Actually like rooting for the bad guys and hoping they don’t end up losing out.

How should this show end (which it should reasonably quickly)? Predict bobby will be executed by a Russian agent and chuck crossing the line to the point of massive jail time (or killing himself in a desperate masochist act).

Bobby flees and becomes a lumberjack after imprisoning Chuck in a cabin on the everglades, where he's blown up after Bobby's latest girlfriend turns on the gas .

Yeah really feel like the show's off the boil now. It's annoying me that they are trying to cram pop culture references into Every Single Conversation. in previous seasons the movie quotes, song lyrics etc where used a lot more sparingly and with great effect.

I hope it picks up again but really I will almost be glad when it draws to an end.

It's taken me a long time to properly accept this, but Wendy is the most despicable character on the show. She's incredibly manipulative and uses other people's deepest secrets against them.

If I wasn't already, I'm firmly on Team Taylor now. That smug look on Wendy's face when Taylor worked it out was so perfectly arch, it made me angry!

That's the first thing I thought when seeing him in that scene too. Just checked IMDB and it seems that's his first appearance, so I guess we're gonna get more of him during the rest of the season.
I looked it up too. He's was a bit part in S1.

He was an old friend of Axe's and they went on a trip to Vegas to see Metallica. He overhears Axe talk about a stock and thinking its some good info buys into the stock. The only problem is that it was one of Axe's plans and the stock tanks. Axe finds out and gives Noah's character the money he lost, but effectively disowns by leaving him in the hotel by himself the next day.

That's why he thanks Axe for inviting him to the pizza party - because he's been frozen out for so long

Improvement from the last 2 episodes but a certain edge and shock value is not there anymore.

Although I did enjoy Wendy getting found out and Mcphee tearing her to shreds on Axe caps turf.

I'm still struggling with the blonde, Wags-like character that is 2IC to Taylor. Her behaviour is really inconsistent.

I'm sure I missed a whole bunch of cameos in the most recent episode, which is not surprising given I know next to nothing about boxing or MMA

Renewed for Season 5.

I'm not sure where they go with it, i think it should probably wrap up after next season.

Maybe Connerty nails Chuck and Axe.. i don't know but it's starting to not hold my interest for the full 58 minutes.

They need a few new characters to freshen it up IMO.

I'll stick it out for the rest of the season but i don't have high hopes for it getting better.

I was feeling that way earlier in the season, but have warmed up over the last few episodes. I agree that I'm not sure where they can take it with another season, but it'll still be entertaining if not essential viewing. I was actually kind of happening it would end with both Axe and Chuck taken down. Their combined hubris can't just continue on forever, can it? I assume at some point it will revert to the old Chuck vs Axe dynamic, probably to end the show.

Reference to Best Of The Best, and Taylor kissed the new office hottie of colour.

What more could one ask for?

The blokes are caught up in a do-or-die Machiavellian, Art of War, Oedipus greek tragedy drama, which could honestly be resolved if they just had a piss up and got the hookers from Wolf Of Wall Street.

Then you have the Feminine. Wendy with her Electra complex. Taylor's gender fluid angst. And Bryan's small penis syndrome.

It's brilliant. Compelling.
